Not bad, but not really impressive either. The design looks arbitrary, could also be made for a completely different brand, has nothing really independent ...

Yes, it's just another one of those shapes... cheaper than a CX though if that's your thing..

Curiously I like the new Renault Alpine sports car though but I wouldn't want one of these..

Hard to know what a Lotus should look like in a modern world. I like it as a design. Proportion looks good in the photo's and the blue certainly gets your attention. If the badges were covered I would be challenged to say who made it. Alpine did spring to mind looking at it. So did a new Ferrari Dino. Better than many recent releases from bigger companies.


Just time to bum a little more petrol before dinner.

From the back a McLaren. Front a Lambo?
I quite like it though

I think it’s great, look amazingly good and a better size than the tiny Alpine and Elise, I’d buy it.

Me too, my favourite car of the current period and the only car I would contemplate owning if I had the kind of money required. I like the idea of the Lotus as they offer supercar performance for sane amounts of money and I could have been tempted by an Evora in different times, it had a certain character and this new model is still a stunner. Perhaps others also find that supercars appear too similar making them less 'super', paint a Mc`Laren red and you would be hard pressed to tell the difference between it and a Ferrari, even the undeniably pretty Roma looks like an Aston Martin which in turn looks like an F type.

I think it's too heavy and wide and at the moment not overly keen on the shape, they may change in time, so I went for an Alpine.

Would prefer the Alpine, too.

I get them at 125mm or 5" wider than an Aero
